Liver Cancer Treatment in Ayurveda

Liver cancer treatment in ayurveda - The liver is a very important organ in the human body. Is placed below the ribs on the right just below the right lung. The most important function of the liver is to convert food into energy and filtering and storing blood. The liver plays a critical role in the detoxification of the blood, that is to say, the removal of toxins produced in the body due to the metabolic activity of the body. The liver receives blood from two sources, the hepatic artery supplies the liver blood from the heart that is rich in oxygen and the portal vein carries nutrient rich blood from the digestive organs. The liver also produces clotting agents necessary for clotting the blood when the body is injured. Secretes bile into the intestines to help absorb nutrients. The liver is composed of several different types of cells. This is the reason why there is several types of malignant (cancerous) tumors and benign (non-cancerous) that can form in the liver.
Liver Cancer Treatment in Ayurveda

Cancer is one of the most dangerous diseases: cancer of The liver (malignancies) an event that is terminal in many cancers. The herboterapia is a very effective treatment without side effects. Citrus medica (Bijoru) is a fruit used since ancient times by practitioners of Ayurveda. The juice of a single fruit of the bijoru is given to patients of the primary cancer as well as metastatic recorded in the "research foundation of Divyajyot Ayurvedic". Improves the metabolism of the liver of the patient, gradually normalizes LFT, prevents recurrence, stops the spread of the disease, decreases the growth of the tumor. At the end of 4 to 6 months, the patient is relieved of the symptoms of the disease and leads a normal life.

Liver Cancer Treatment in Ayurveda

The liver is the largest gland in the body and performs over 500 different functions. The liver cancer, primary is relatively rare, but cancer of the liver metastatic (spread to a distant organ-cancerous) is at least 20 times more than the liver cancer, primary. The liver metastasis is an event terminal in many cancers. The advanced metastatic cancer of the liver is a significant problem with limited options of treatment and has very few chances of survival. The chronic liver diseases include viral hepatitis, jaundice, alcoholic cirrhosis or cirrhosis primary, hepatitis B, all these factors of risk of hepatocellular carcinoma. Males have a higher risk of H CC than women. The metastasis may be solitary or multiple. In case of multiple metastases, the liver function can be altered, which leads to a further deterioration in the condition of a patient. The treatment options in this scenario are limited with a fatal outcome usual. The common symptoms found in these patients are: enlarged liver, loss of weight, elevation, abnormal liver enzymes, elevation of AFP, anemia, liver injuries multiple or multiple, obstructive jaundice ... etc, For the detection of hepatic carcinoma; elevation of AFP, USG Abdomen , Ct scan or mri of the abdomen, needle biopsy or biopsy of the liver laproscópica is useful.

100 patients were selected to be examined for "Citrus medica" juice Effects on their disease, registered at "Divyajyot Ayurvedic Research Foundation". The team's chief researcher and head of the institute "Vaidya Shree Shree Maa Anantanand Tirthaji" and other members of the research committee, along with his research assistant, doctors and scientists carried out the entire project.

Benign tumors:

  • (i) Hemangioma - The most common type of benign liver tumor, begins in blood vessels. Because the majority of hemangiomas of the liver cause no symptoms do not need treatment. However, some may need to be removed surgically.
  • (ii) liver Adenomas - Are benign tumors of hepatocytes (the main type of liver cell). Most do not cause symptoms and needs no treatment. However, some eventually cause symptoms, such as abdominal pain, a mass in the abdomen or blood loss. Because there is the risk that the tumor is broken, and a small risk that you will eventually turn into liver cancer, most experts usually recommend surgical removal if possible.
  • (iii) focal nodular Hyperplasia - this Is a tumor growth of several types of cells. Although tumors of FNH are benign, it can be difficult to tell them apart from true liver cancers, and is sometimes surgically removed when the diagnosis is not clear.

Malignant tumors:

  • (i) hepatocellular Carcinoma: - this Is the most common form of liver cancer that occurs. On numerous occasions, called hepatoma because it comes from the hepatocytes. Representing approximately 75% of the primary cancers of the liver.
  • (ii) Cholangiocarcinomas: - This represents 10 to 20% of the primary cancers of the liver. These are also referred to as colateocarcinomas intrahepatic (starting with the liver). These cancers start in the small bile ducts within the liver.
  • (iii) Angiosarcomas and hemangiosarcomas: - these Are rare cancers that begin in the blood vessels of the liver. It is known that exposure to various chemicals such as chlorides of vinyl or oxide of thorium, and radioactive elements such as radium or poisons such as arsenic to cause this type of cancers. The angiosarcomas grow rapidly, by the time they are detected the growth is too large to be surgically removed.
  • (iv) Hepatoblastoma: - This is a very rare type of cancer that develops in children, usually up to five years of age. If it is detected early, this cancer is highly treatable.

Liver Cancer Treatment in Ayurveda: Symptoms

Signs and symptoms in the liver cancers are not present until the last stage when the cancer has spread. Many signs and symptoms are relatively non-specific, can be caused by other cancers or diseases that are not cancerous. However, the following symptoms may require attention.

  • (i) weight Loss unexplained and unintentional.
  • (ii) Anorexia - persistent loss of appetite.
  • (iii) Increase in the liver or a mass that can be felt in the liver area.
  • (iv) persistent abdominal Pain.
  • (v) Jaundice.
  • (vi) Hyperglycemia - Some hormones liver may cause hyperglycemia (high levels of calcium in the blood). This can lead to weakness.
  • (vii) Hypoglycemia - low Levels of sugar in the blood, which can lead to fainting.
  • (viii) Gynecomastia - growth of breasts in men, shrinking of the testicles.
  • (ix) Aseitis - water Retention in the abdominal area. Many patients are seen with these symptoms.

Risk Factors

  • (i) Gender - hepatocellular carcinoma is predominantly more common in men than in women.
  • (i) chronic viral Hepatitis - chronic infection (long-term) with the hepatitis B virus or the hepatitis C virus is a major risk factor for liver cancer. These infections are responsible for making liver cancer the most common type of cancer in the world.
  • (iii) Cirrhosis - Cirrhosis is the result of the formation of scar tissue in the liver. This can often lead to cancer. Most of the cirrhosis of the liver occurs in people who abuse alcohol. But, the hepatitis B and C are also major causes of cirrhosis of the liver. Another cause is excess iron in the liver.
  • (iv) Consumption of tobacco: it has been established a link between tobacco consumption and cancer of the liver. Combined with the tobacco of the alcohol is very potent in causing cancer.
  • (v) hereditary metabolic Diseases - Certain metabolic diseases can also lead to cirrhosis. People with hemochromatosis absorb too much iron from their food. Are more likely to develop cirrhosis due to the high levels of iron in your liver.
  • (vi) Aflatoxins - These cancer causing substances are produced by a fungus that contaminates crops. Long-term exposure may cause hepatocellular carcinoma.
  • (vii) Arsenic - chronic exposure to drinking water contaminated with naturally occurring arsenic, such as that of the wells, increases the risk of liver cancer.

Especially when the cancer is found in the liver, did not start there but spread, or metastasis of a cancer that is developed in the other organs of the body such as the pancreas, colon, stomach, breast, or lung, and liver metastases. These tumors have the name of your primary site of occurrences, and more known as metastasis. For example, the cancer started in the lung and spread to the liver is called metastatic lung cancer with spread to the liver.

The following methods are used by modern science in the diagnosis of liver cancer.

  • (i) Ultrasound
  • (ii) computed Tomography (CT)
  • (iii) The magnetic resonance imaging (MRI)
  • (iv) Angiography
  • (v) Leproscopia
  • (vi) Biopsy
  • (vii) a blood test of alpha-fetoprotein.


  • (i) Stage 1 - The tumor can be small or large but it has not affected the blood vessels.
  • (ii) Stage 2 - there May be many tumors of large size, but the blood vessels are not yet affected.
  • (iii) Stage 3- There are several tumors, and at least one is larger than 5 cms. And a tumor invades a branch of major blood vessels of the liver. (Portal vein or hepatic vein)
  • (iv) Stage 3-b - A tumor invades an organ nearby, or a tumor has penetrated the lining of the liver.
  • (v) 3-Stage c - The cancer has invaded nearby lymph nodes.
  • (vi) Stage 4 - The cancer has spread to other parts of the body.
